This girl has come such a long way in the last year. For those that have been following my blog for a while, you know Ella's story. .
For those that haven't, the short story-she has some pretty tough anxiety which has been hard on us all and has progressed over the last several years. Seeing your 9 year old with anxiety is tough. She overthinks everything, worries about way too much for a kid, and never shuts her mind off-getting to sleep is a battle. She's in art therapy, and that seems to be helping, though! She also has some mild sensory processing issues-they've gotten better over the years but still linger here and there. I worry she misses out on a lot because of it. .
So to see her today IN the ocean, going under the water, playing in the sand, and having the time of her life just made me the happiest. It's been a process to get here-lots of tears through the years, but here we are, and loving it ❤️
Don't give up, Mom's and Dad's-you'll get there 😊
